Turkey Leg Hut Files for Bankruptcy Amid Ongoing Legal Issues and Financial Woes

Turkey Leg Hut declares bankruptcy

In the wake of a fire at its business office and ongoing legal issues, the Turkey Leg Hut has filed for bankruptcy, according to owner Nakia Holmes. The filing took place in the 127th Judicial District Court in Harris County on Tuesday, March 26. The move comes after a judge ruled that Holmes and former co-owner Lyndell Price must pay over $900,000 to a former business partner.

The Turkey Leg Hut, which opened in 2016, has been embroiled in controversy and legal battles ever since. Despite facing financial troubles due to a debt of $2 million in state tax revenue and a lawsuit from former business partner Steve Rogers, the restaurant remains a popular spot in the community.

In an effort to reposition the business, the Turkey Leg Hut is looking to make some changes. A receiver has been appointed by the court to handle its assets and funds as part of Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings. This move will put an end to collection efforts while discussions continue with financial stakeholders about how best to proceed with restructuring or liquidation of the business.
